So working, freelancing, writing this blog and trying to have a life in between leaves me little time to self-tan. This Thursday, my skin was virtually the same exact color as Colin Craven‘s of The Secret Garden. My friend Julia recommended Guerlain’s Terracotta Sunless Tinted Self-Tanning Gel and I so took her advice. She’s usually right when it comes to beauty. She’s French. I’m now feeling a little less bond girl (a girl who works for a bond rating agency) and a little more Bond Girl.
This tinted gel goes on easily, nourishes skin with hydration, and applies with minimal streaking. It smells pretty much of nothing when it goes on, the next morning, there’s a very faint DHA scent that fades as the day wears on. The best part? It can be used on the face and the body. I have the intense tan version, and it even looks natural on me, the palest person in hist. Check it out at Sephora, Saks, or Nordstrom.
UPDATE: It will be available March 10th at Saks.
In other news, I’m home sick. I woke up this morning with NO voice and glands the size of… New Jersey. UGH. Anyone know a good primary care physician in NYC? Let me know in the comments!
